Two Oklahoman energy reporters sat down with new Chesapeake Energy Chairman Archie Dunham. Some highlights: Chesapeake should stay in OKC; “the company is in trouble, reputationally,” and CEOs have to remember they work for shareholders.
“It’s going to be a hard job,” Dunham said. “Aubrey is a brilliant and very successful CEO. It’s going to be hard for him to no longer be chairman, president and CEO. But I feel confident that the two of us can work together and that Aubrey recognizes that a strong board is really a tremendous asset for the CEO not only in the long term, but also in the short term.”
